The friendly team at Tranquility Bay is always more than happy to arrange a variety of off-site excursions, including fishing charters, diving and snorkeling trips, reef exploration, and other adventures. If you have a family of animal lovers, take time out in the great outdoors to search for deer on Big Pine Key, meeting the birds at the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center, or learning about sea turtles at the nearby Turtle Hospital in Marathon. You can finish the afternoon playing in the sand and surf – or simply soaking up the sun – at any number of beautiful beaches in the area, from the popular Sombrero Beach to the low-key Coco Plum Beach.
